Gas Permeable Lenses

  • Gas permeable (GP) lenses have been known to give better results, but they do require some adaptation for the wearer. GP lenses should be worn every day in order for your eyes to condition to them.
  • GP contacts are made of a firm, durable plastic that transmits oxygen.
  • They offer excellent eye health because they don’t contain water like soft lenses do, they resist deposits and are less likely than soft contacts to harbor bacteria.
  • GP contact lenses clean and disinfect easily, don’t dehydrate, are easier to handle, and last longer than soft lenses.
  • Vision World fits Scleral GP lenses.  Scleral lenses are used for those who have conditions of the cornea, such as Keratoconus and post corneal transplants.
